Since then the general assembly of the state of

effective immediately by reason of the emergency 
clause appended to said amendatory act and, by 
virtue of the amendment, the city council is re-

The undersigned Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
have had under consideration the question of the 
election of Mayor of the City of Chicago. By reason 



of the fiscal condition of the City, the necessity for 
prompt payment of school teachers, policemen, fire- 
men and other City employees, and the orderly fi- 
nancing of the City's various activities, it was deemed 
essential to arrive at a prompt decision of the ques- 
tion as to the person qualified to fill the oflice of 
Mayor, and as well, to have the election held at the 
earliest possible date. 

The names of several persons of ability and stand- 
ing in the community were presented and ^iven the 
fullest consideration. The undersigned recognize 
I heir responsibility to the people of Chicago, and 
have given the fullest consideration possible to the 
selection of Mayor. We have come to a definite con- 
elusion and hereby recommend the election of Ed- 
ward J. Kelly as such Mayor. We were moved to 
that decision by his outstanding ability as an execu- 
tive in municipal affairs in our community as Presi- 
dent of the South Park Board and as the close and 
trusted advisor of our late lamented Mayor, Anton 
J. Cermak. 

We know that he is fully cognizant of the policies 
of our late Mayor and of the problems that confront 
the City of Chicago as well as other municipalities 
in the County of Cook. We feel also that by reason 
of his advancement in public life from humble sta- 
tion, he deeply recognizes the problems of all the 
people of Chicago, and we present his name with full 
confidence that he will discharge the duties of Mayor 
with signal ability and with the fullest promise of 
a successful administration which will refiect credit 
upon the citizens of the City of Chicago. 

His intimate knowledge of the activities of the 
Century of Progress by reason of his position as 
President of the South Park Board, make him espe- 
cially qualified to be Mayor during the holding of 
the Century of Progress. 

We hereby tender to him. if elected, our fullest 
co-operation in the advancement of the policies of 
our late lamented Mayor, particularly in the econom- 
ical administration of government with consequent 
benefits to the taxpayers.

JOURNAI ^CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



April 17, 1933. 



Council, to the assembled guests and to the radio 
audience. Mr. Kelly thereupon spoke as follows: 

"Two years ago, almost to a day, we witnessed in 
this hall a glorious and eventful scene. We cheered 
and applauded the new Mayor," little knowing that 
we were watching the opening scoiu' of a great 
tragedy. 

"At that time, our city was at the lowest mark in 
its history. Our treasury was empty. The criminal 
element had a strangle hold upon us. The whole 
world looked upon Chicago as if it were the very 
symbol of lawlessness. Bui an iron man had come 
to take hold of its affairs, and so marvelously did 
he perform, that within less than two years he 
compelled the whole world to recognize that this is 
a city of God-fearing and law-abiding Americans — 
that we had the will and the power to raise our- 
selves to our rightful position among our sister 
cities. 

"Today, b}' the action of fliis council, 1 am called 
to take the place made vacant by Anton J. Cermak. 

"I am not prepared to present a detailed program 
to this honorable body. Time, since my election, was 
too short for that. But I do know the plight in 
which Chicago finds itself. 

"Our teachers, policemen, firemen and other mu- 
nicipal employes have been working for months 
without pay. 

"The general economic conditions are making it 
increasingly difiicult for our citizens to pay their 
taxes, while others able to do so, are delaying or 
refusing payment. 

"Two hundred thousand families are dependent 
- upon public or private charity for their daily bread. 

"The lawless elements of our city are not yet 
completely conquered. 

"The cost of government has not yet reached the 
lowest possible figure consistent with good public 
service. 

"These conditions present our major problems. 
To solve them, I shall need your help. This is a 
council-governed city, and while the law places 
responsibility upon the executive, it is my earnest 
hope that through conference and co-operation, 
mutual understanding between us will always pre- 
vail which will enable us to deal with all our major 
difficulties harmoniously. 

"Chicago, for a great many years, has suffered 
from adverse criticism, some of it, I regret to say, 
justified. The claim had been made that law en- 
forcement had broken down in Chicago. I am proud 
to say to you now that that impression has been dis- 
sipated to a great degree, and I pledge specifically 
the fullest co-operation with our able and energetic 
State's Attorney in the administration nf his otfice 
to the end that organized crime be effectively driven 
from our community. 

"We are now approaching a great historic event 
in the life of our city. On June 1st, we shall open 
to the world the Century of Progress Exposition. We 
shall be visited, I hope, by millions coming from 
every quarter of the globe. It is my profound be- 
lief that we shall be able to give evidence of a 
real century of progress. 1 am inviting our fellow 
citizens to join me in presenting to our visitors Chi- 
cago as it really is — the heart and spirit of Chicago. 
A city great in population — great in physical, moral 
and spiritual achievement, and a city full of hope 
and full of confidence in the far greater destiny that 
lies before it. 



"My remarks would not be complete were I not 
to pay tribute to a great leader who, justly, was your 
first choice for the position which I now have the 
honor to fill. The self-effacing sacrifice that Patrick 
A. Nash made by refusing to accept the honor prof- 
fered to him is only another evidence of his high 
character, loyalty and unselfishness. 

"Gentlemen of the Council, we all love Chicago. 
We have problems, it is true, but we shall meet 
them as men. I invite all of.our citizens to join in 
the task. We shall not sell Chicago short. Her 
destiny is to reach the first place among the cities 
of the world. Let us begin now to carry her for- 
ward toward that destiny." 

At the conclusion of the address the Temporary 
Chairman turned over the gavel to Honorable Edward 
.1. Kelly, Mayor, who thereupon took the Chair. 



Presentation of a New Gavel to the Mayor. 

Alderman Arvey, on behalf of the "Committee on 
Committees", thereupon presented a new gavel to 
the Mayor, who accepted it with a promise to use it 
with impartial fairness during meetings of the City 
Council. 



Pi'esenlalioii of an Engrossed Resolution lo Hon. 
Barnet Hodes. 

By unanimous consent, the proceedings were there- 
upon interrupted to permit Honorable Edward J. Kelly, 
Mayor, to present to Honorable Barnet Hodes, who was 
present in the Council Chamber, a framed engrossed 
and illuminated copy of a resolution adopted by the 
Council on March 15, 1933, felicitating Alderman Hodes 
upon his appointment as a member of the State Tax 
Commission. 



Recess. 



At 9:30 o'clock P. M. Alderman Massen thereupon 
moved that the City Council do now take a recess for 
five minutes. 

The motion prevailed, and the City Council stood re- 
cessed. 

Reassembling op the CrrY Council After Recess. 

At 9:35 o'clock P, M. the City Council was again in 
order, with Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, in the 
Chair. 



Adoption of Rules of Order and Assignment of Aldermen 
to Membership on Standing Committees. 

Aldermen Arvey, Doyle, Keane, Quinn and Cronson. 
constituting an unofficial committee chosen by the 
members of the newly-elected City Council at a caucus 
held on Wednesday, April 5, 1933, submitted the follow- 
ing statement, which was ordered published and placed 
on file: 

To the Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the City 
of Chicago, and Members of the City Council: 

Pursuant to Council Resolution adopted by the City 
Council at its meeting of March 15, 1933, and by 
further authority of the caucus convened thereunder, 
the undersigned are prepared to present and submit 



April 17, 1933. 



ORGANIZATION. 



9 



to you for adoption a resolution containing Rules of 
Order of the City Council and assignments of Alder- 
men to. Standing Committees. 

We desire in this statement to point out several 
important changes in the Rules which, in our opin- 
ion, deserve explanation. In our deliberations we 
arrived at certain conclusions having no proper place 
in the Rules of Order, yet of sufficient importance to 
warrant our presuming to make pertinent suggestions 
and recommendations with reference thereto. 

Every person elected to serve as Alderman for this 
term must of necessity recognize the serious state 
of our cash position, which has been brought about 
in a large measure by the tax muddle now existing 
in our county. The situation is so acute that we 
feel certain each Alderman is prepared to lay aside 
partisan, factional and personal feelings and in- 
terests in order that the Council may be free to 
devote its time and energy to the pressing problems 
before us. Because of this situation we have, in 
the filling of vacancies, deviated in some cases from 
the precedent and custom of substituting from the 
same tier of wards, where adherence to that custom 
would deprive the Council of the services of older 
and more experienced Aldermen on important com- 
mittees. It is obvious that it was impossible to 
grant all the requests and concur in all the recom- 
mendations and suggestions made to us. 

One of the greatest abuses of Council rules, in our 
opinion, is the asking for unanimous consent for the 
passage of resolutions, ordinances and orders at the 
time of their introduction in the City Council. 

Rule 43 in the Rules of Order, 1931-1933, and Rule 
45 contained in the resolution to be submitted, pro- 
vides as follows : 

"All ordinances, petitions, resolutions, order.s 
and communications to the Council, shall, unless 
by unanimous consent, be referred to appropriate 
committees, fo be decided by the Chair, and only 
acted upon by the Council at a subsequent meet- 
ing, on the report of the committee having the 
same in charge." 

We strongly urge that this rule be adhered to by 
Aldermen and the City Department Heads, as well, 
and that unanimous consent be asked for only in 
cases of emergency and on matters which are ex- 
tremely urgent. 

Under the Rules of Order which regulated the pro- 
cedure of the City Council for many terms in the 
past, a, quorum of a committee was fixed at seven 
members, which would make it possible for four 
Aldermen, a majority of the quorum, to either re- 
port out favorably or pfece on file important resolu- 
tions, ordinances and orders. We are of the opinion 
that there should be better attendances at commit- 
tee meetings and that a qorum should consist of a( 
least a majority of the members of the committee, 
and we have so provided in our rules. 

We have also determined that every resolution, 
ordinance or order reported out by a committee to 
the City Council for adoption shall have endorseil 
thereon the vote on the matter in the committee, 
which vote shall also be announced by the Chairman 
of the Committee in making his report. 

We recognize the great abuse of the right to speak 
to a question of personal privilege. A question of 
personal privilege is the highest ranking matter ui 
an assembly save one, and that is a question of the 
privilege of the assembly. Wo have studied the mat- 
ter of handling this matter in other legislative as- 



semblies, as well as all the known authorities on 
Rules of Order, and have provided in our rules, in 
accordance with what we find to be the best thought 
on the subject — That a member may rise and speak 
t(! a question of personal privilege only when his 
integrity, character or his motives are assailed, ques- 
tioned or impugned. 

Another flagrant abuse of parliamentary proce- 
dure is found in the custom of explaining a vote on 
roll call. In some assemblies we find that the right 
is given to a member to explain his vote after the 
roll call has been concluded, but in no instance can 
we discover any authority for permitting a member 
tn explain his vote when his name is called for 
vote. The purpose of a roll call is to determine the 
vote of the members present, and is for no other 
purpose. All debate should be had prior to the 
faking of the vote. We have provided in our Rules, 
therefore, that after discussion has been concluded 
and the presiding officer shall have stated the ques- 
tion and the taking of the vote has been ordered, no 
member shall be permitted to speak further on the 
question. 

We recommend that the Legislature of the State 
of Illinois and His Excellency, the Governor, be re- 
quested to provide by appropriate legislation that 
the City Council shall have the right to empower 
a committee or subcommittee of the City Council to 
subpoena witnesses and administer oaths. The City 
Council should have the right to make orderly in- 
vestigations and inquiries with witnesses sworn to 
toll the truth. Experience in election contests and 
in investigations relating to collusive bidding has 
taught us that unless there is power to have sworn 
testimony, there is very little good accomplished by 
such investigations or inquiries. We believe, how- 
ever, that the very greatest care should be exercised 
in limiting this power to matters of urgent character 
and that no committee should have the right to sub- 
poena and swear witnesses unless the Council by a 
two-thirds vote deems it necessary for the investiga- 
tion or the inquiry. We believe it to be the in- 
herent right of every legislative body to have such 
powers and respectfully ask the City Council for 
sponsorship of such legislation. 

We believe that there is a pressing need for a 
President pro tern of the Council, who shall be 
elected from among its number at the beginning of 
each Council term and whose duty it shall be to pre- 
side at meetings of the City Council during a tem- 
porary absence or disability of the Mayor, or when 
requested so to do by the Mayor. 

We feel that we need make no argument in sup- 
port of this proposal, other than to point out thi- 
confusion which existed subsequent to the shooting 
of the late Mayor Cermak in Miami. The welfare of 
the people of the City of Chicago demands smooth, 
orderly and uninterrupted functioning of the City 
government. 

We have also made minor changes in the Rules ti) 
enable us to handle the work of the Council with 
greater facility, better order and a clearer imder- 
standing. 

Tn the interest of good government, we respect- 
fully appeal to the members of the City Council to 
familiarize themselves with the Rules of Order tn 
be adopted by them and to proceed in accordance 
with them at all times so that there may be harmony 
and order at our meetings and in our discussions; 
that we may dispose of business expeditiously; thaf 
we'may work as a unit in attacking liie serious prob-

Gentlemen— We have prepared and submit here- 
with draft of an amendment to an ordinance passed 
by your honorable body on February 1, 1933, and 
appearing on pages 3341 and 3342 of the council's 
journal of that date whereby it was designed lo 
make it possible to pay freight charges on coal by 
means of tax anticipation warrants. 

The representatives of some of the railroads have 
stated to us that the wording of the said ordinance 
indicates that the freight should be charged against 
th coal dealers and that if such is the case it would 
be contrary to law for the railroads to accept any- 
thing but cash for same. 

In order to overcome this objection we had a con- 
ference with the attorneys for these railroad com- 
panies and we agreed upon an amendment to the 
ordinance which will obviate the difficulty and bo 
satisfactory to all concerned. The draft submitted 
herewith is the amendment so agreed upon. We

In (he Matter of (he Paymen( of Interest on Condemna-

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was 
referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Law,| 
Chicago. April 17, 1933. [ 

To the Honorable, the Citij Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The supreme court of Illinois on 
April i2, 1933, denied the petition of the city of' 
Chicago for a rehearing in the case of Turk -vs. City 
of Chicago, docketed in that court as case No. 21336, 
and thereby made final its judgment and opinion filed 
February 23, 1933. 

This case involved a very important principle of 
law applicable to condemnation proceedings under 
tiie local improvement act. On December 31, 1928, 
Louis Turk was awarded $22,500'.00 in a proceeding 
brought by the city of Chicago to condemn part of 
his property for widening North Western avenue. 
The condemned property was not, however, taken 
by the city until September 22, 1930, when payment 
(if the award was made to Louis Turk as owner of 
f!ie property. In this suit Turk claimed interest 
from the date the judgment became final under the 
law (90 days after the awards and the dale of pay- 
ment of the award, although during that time he had 
the full use of the property and received incomi' 
tlierefrom without interference from the city. 

Tiu'k brought suit in the superior court of Cook 
County to recover interest at the rate of five per 
cent per annum, which amounted to $1,759.00. We 
contended that under the law and the facts in this 
case the plaintifi', Turk, was not entitled to interest, 
and we prevailed in the superior court. An ai)peal 
was taken to the appellate court which reversed the 
judgment of the superior court and entered judgment 
for the amount of interest claimed, but the appel- 
late court granted a certificate of imiiortance for an 
n|)peal to the supreme court of Illinois. 

On October 22, 1932, the supreme court reversed 
the judgment of the appellate court holding that 
under the local improvement act interest on an award 
in condemnation is not chargeable until the property 
is taken by the city; and that the interest act is nol 
applicable to municipal corporations. Thereupon 
Louis Turk, by his counsel and a number of lawyers 
interested in similar cases arising out of condemna- 
tion of their clients' properties, filed a petition for a 
rehearing, which was granted, and the case was 
reargued, resulting in final decision on the 23rd of 
February, 1933. The supreme court reversed itself 
and held that Section 3 of the interest act applicable 
to general judgments governed municipal corpora- 
tions as well as private persons and corporations, and 
final judgments in condemnation proceedings as well 
as in cases brought for the recovery of money. We 



thereupon applied for a rehearing which, as indi- 
cated above, was denied. 

We have pending on our dockets a dozen or more 
cases involving claims for interest on condemnation 
awards, aggregating several hundred thousand dol- 
lars, which will be governed by the decision in this 
case.

Sufigestion for Certain Courses of Action to Lessen 
Chicago's Financial Distress. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was 
referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of Law,] 
Chicago, April 17, 1933.1 

'fa the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We feel certain that the members of 
the city council are fully alive to the unfortunate 
financial muddle in tax collections and revenue af- 
fairs generally which confronts the various local 
governments and w-hich renders it difficult to main- 
lain them under present conditions. But while the 
council is fully advised in the matter there has been 
no definite program outlined so far as we are in- 
formed for the purpose of coping with this situation. 
Under these circumstances we deem it proper to 
submit to your honorable body an outline of what 
we consider the most essential steps to be taken 
forthwith in order to bring order out of the chaos 
that has been so often described. Thei^e are. of 
course, many things which should be done which 
are beyond the power of the city's officers, but there 
are a number of things that can be brought about 
by pressure such as we suggest herein. We recom- 
uiend that the following steps be taken: 

( 1 ' The disposal, at the earliest possible moment, 
of all tax objections filed in the county court. 
There are still many matters relating to 1928, 1929 
and 1930 taxes that are undisposed of in the county 
court and these should be pressed to finality at once. 

(2) The enactment into law of the so-called 
Skarda bill authorizing the county treasurer to be 
appointed receiver in order to operate buildings on 
which delinquent taxes have accumulated. This 
would tend very materially to clear the situation. 

(3i The cessation by the State Tax Commission 
of the entry of orders making horizontal cuts in 
Aalualions. The recent order entered by the com- 
mission, in our opinion, was wholly unlawful and 
has tended to infuse new life into the tax strike that 
has been in progress for some time. 

(4) The cessation by the board of tax appeals 
of the entering of orders of a wholesale nature re- 
ducing valuations that have, presumably at least, 
been made on a scientific basis, and particularly the 
entering of any orders on any class of buildings 
granting horizontal reductions in valuations. 

(5) The defeat of Senate Bill 463, a bill which 
would have the effect of reopening the tax litigation 



April 17, 1933. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



31 



on behalf of the objectors who have been defeated 
at every turn, and would enable the county judge to 
turn assessor and compromise or reduce delinquent 
1928, 1929 and 1930 taxes. We considered this bill 
of enough importance to send a separate communi- 
cation under date of April 12, 1933, to your honor- 
tible body calling- attention to the dangers that were 
inherent in said bill. It is of the utmost importance 
that this bill should be defeated. 

(61 The discarding of the proposed plan to per- 
mit delinquent taxes to be paid in a number of in- 
stallments. A number of letters were sent out re- 
cently from the corporation counsel's office whicli 
were signed by the slate's attorney in which requests 
Avere made of certain bondholders' committees to 
pay delinquent taxes out of funds which their re- 
ports showed they had on hand. Replies were re- 
ceived from some of these to the effect that they 
are deferring making such payments because they 
are waiting to see if the above mentioned plan will 
be enacted into law. 

(7) Everything should be done to stop, and all 
action and talk discontinued that has the effect of 
causing delinquent taxpayers to believe that theii- 
delinquent taxes may be compromised or that legis- 
lation will be passed that will enable them to pay 
such delinquent taxes on the installment plan. 
iVothing should be said or done by fax assessing oi' 
tax collecting officials or by the county court thn( 
would leave any hope of having such delinquent 
taxes reduced or payment deferred thereon. All such 
things would have a tendency to make for further 
instability in the tax situation. We recommend that 
■a conference be called between the governor, the 
7nayor and certain prominent citizens who have in- 
fluence with members of the legislature and others 
so that sufficient pressure could be exercised to 
bring about the matters we have above indicated. 
Unless things are stabilized along the lines we have 
suggested, the time will soon arrive when there will 
rio longer be any need to worry about salaries due 
school teachers or other public employes because 
there will be no local governments left to worry 
about them.

In the Matter of llie Grahain-Adamowski Law. 

The City Clerk presented the following opinion, sub- 
mitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was ordered 
published and placed on file: 

Dep.'Vrtment of Law, I 
Chicago, April 17, 1933. f 

To the Honorable , the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On April 13, 1933, your honorable 
body passed an order introducer! by Alderman Oscar 
Nelson instructing the Corporation Counsel to ren- 
der an opinion "as to whether the Graham-Adam- 
■owski Law, providing for the election of a Mayor 
by the City Council from within or without its 
membership, is contrary to Section 34 of Article TV 
■of the Constitution of the State of Illinois." 

The law refrMTed lo is an amendment to Section 2 



of Article II of the general law for the incorporation 
of cities and villages, approved April 10, 1872. Prior 
to July 1, 1931, said Section 2 read as follows: 

"Whenever a vacancy shall happen in the office 
of the mayor, when the unexpired term shall be 
one year or over from the date when the vacancy 
occurs, it shall be filled by an election." 

By an act approved June 18, 1931, the following 
proviso was added to the foregoing section which 
became effective on July 1, 1931 : 

"provided that in cities of 500,000 or less in- 
habitants, the city council shall elect one of its 
own number mayor to act as such and possess all 
the rights and powers of the mayor, until his suc- 
cessor is duly elected and qualified after a special 
election which shall be had for such purpose 
within six months after such vacancy occurs." 

At the present session of the General Assembly 
(58th) the following provision was added to said 
Section 2 (Senate Bill No. 367, approved March 31, 
1933) : 

"In cities having a population of more than five 
hundred thousand inhabitants the city council 
shall elect a mayor, from its own membership or 
not as the council shall determine, to act as such 
and exercise and possess all the rights and powers 
thereof until his successor is duly elected and 
qualified." 

It appears from the foregoing history of legis- 
lation upon the subject of filling a vacancy in the 
office of mayor that the distinctipn between cities of 
500,000 or less inhabitants and those having a popu- 
lation of more than 500,000 was made in 1931. when 
the first proviso quoted was enacted. The act of 
the 58th General Assembly added to those cities in 
the State of Illinois, for which provision for the 
election of a mayor ad interim was made, all other 
cities not theretofore included in the category of 
those having a population of 500,000 or less. 

Classification of cities by population, which bears 
any reasonable relation to the purposes of an act of 
the legislature in question, has been held repeatedly 
not to be violative of Section 22 of Article IV of 
the Constitution of Illinois which prohibits the pas- 
sage of local or special laws incorporating cities, 
towns or villages, or changing or amending their 
charters (Cummings v. City of Chicago, 144 111. 563; 
Douglas v. The People, ex rel., 225 111. 536; North- 
western University v. WHmette, 230 111. 80; The 
People, ex rel. v. Grover, 258 111. 124, 127). The fact 
that Chicago is the only city in the state which, at 
this time, has a population of more than 500,000 
inhabitants does not render the act special or local 
legislation within the meaning of said Section 22. 
A law may be general and yet operative in only one 
place (Mathews v. City of Chicago, 342 111. 120^ 

Section 34 of Article IV of the Constitution of 
Illinois relates to the power of the legislature to 
j)ass laws affecting the local municipal government 
of the City of Chicago. The purpose of said section 
was to amend Section 22 of Article IV of the Con- 
stitution' above referred to so as to permit the pas- 
sage of local or special laws affecting the City of 
Chicago. Such a law, however, cannot become 
effective until consented to by the people of Chi- 
cago, as required by that provision in said Section 
34 reading as follows: 

"No law based upon this amendmenl in iln- Con- 
stitution, afi'ecting the municii)al government of 
the City of Chicago, shall take (dfect until such 
law shall he consented to by a niajoi'lly of the

legal voters of said city voting on the question at 
any election, general, municipal or special; * * *." 

The so-called Graham-Adamovi'ski law does not 
purport to affect the municipal government of the 
City of Chicago alone but, by its terms, it may affect 
any city in the State of Illinois which may here- 
after attain a population of more than 500,000 in- 
habitants. In our opinion it is clearly not a law 
based upon the amendment to the Constitution re- 
ferred to, and therefore it does not contravene Sec- 
tion 34 of Article IV of the Constitution of Illinois 
because it was not required to be submitted to a 
referendum for the consent of the legal voters of 
the City of Chicago.

In the Matter of a Proposed Amendment of the Revenue 

Act to Give the County Judge Increased Power to 

Hear Objections to 1928, 1929 and 1930 Taxes 

(Senate Bill No. 463). 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which was, 
together with the copy of the Bill transmitted there- 
with, referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department op Law,| 
Chicago, April 12, 1933.| 

To the Honorable, the City Council of tlie City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We deem it important that the at- 
tention of your honorable body should be called to a 
bill that was introduced recently in the senate and 
is nov/ known as Senate Bill No. 463. 

This bill contains an amendment to Section 191 
of the revenue act of 1878, the effect of which would 
be to give the county judge increased powers on 
the hearing of objections to the 1928, 1929 and 1930 
taxes. 

The bill directs the county judge to hear com- 
plaints against the over-assessment of any property 
upon which taxes for the years 1928, 1929 and 1930 
have been extended, and upon such hearing to de- 
termine the amount that the property should have 
been assessed, and the bill further provides that in 
such cases it shall not be necessary for the objector 
to prove actual or constructive fraud in the making 
of the assessment or to show that he has exhausted 
the other remedies which have existed up to this 
time. 

If this bill becomes a law it will practically nullify 
the effect of the litigation concerning local taxes 
extending over the period of the last three years or 
more. Moreover, giving the judiciary power to de- 
termine the value of property for purposes of taxa- 
tion is a departure from the established policy of 
the state from the time of its organization. 

The supreme court has rendered a long line of 
decisions, not broken at any time, to the effect that 
the determination of the value of property for pur- 
poses of taxation was not a judicial function, and 
that the courts could interfere with the judgment 
and discretion of the executive officers who fixed 



such values only in case of fraud. There are sound 
reasons for this rule, among them being the fad 
that a court cannot go outside of testimony regularly 
presented to make independent investigations. This 
bill would overturn this long standing policy and 
place the ultimate valuation within the control of 
the county judge. 

The enactment of the bill would also destroy the 
fruits of the victories achieved by the county col- 
lector in a long series of cases brought by the pro- 
moters of the tax strike which has delayed the col- 
lection of taxes to a perilous extent in this county. 
These parties brought suit after suit, securing a 
number of injunctions and adverse orders from dif- 
ferent judges, but these in every instance were finally 
decided in favor of the collector in the state and 
federal supreme courts. Some of these cases went 
so far as the United States Supreme Court, where 
they were in every instance dismissed on the mo- 
tion of the collector. This bill would overturn all 
this, and the probabilities are that this almost end- 
less litigation would be revived and gone over a sec- 
ond tim.e, with further delay in the collection of 
taxes. In fact, the bill means the resuscitation of a 
mass of agitation of which we assumed we had heard 
the expiring gasp. 

Aside from all this, in case the bill would actually 
have the effect intended, it, would result in the 
rankest discrimination against the loyal taxpayer 
who paid his taxes and could not recover back any- 
thing that he has paid. Thus the bill would enact 
legislation that not only would be troublesome in the 
extreme but downright unjust as well. It might be 
held unconstitutional but before that decision could 
be reached there would probably be a flood of litiga- 
tion and all taxpayers would be subjected to solici- 
tation to join racketeering organizations which have 
collected immense sums of money from them with- 
out rendering any adequate return. While it is true 
that the failure of taxpayers to receive a hearing 
before the board of review was an unjust thing, it 
would not right this wrong to pile other wrongs on 
top of it. 

Inasmuch as these matters vitally concern the city 
of Chicago, we will await some answer to this letter 
from your honorable body after it has considered the 
matters presented herein.

In the Matter of Legislation Affecting the City of 
Chicago Introduced in the 58th General Assembly. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica-

Department of Law,| 
Chicago, April 13, 1933. |

Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Since our last report concerning bills 
introduced in the general assembly which directly 
affect the city of Chicago the following bills have 
been presented all of which are of direct interest to

the city of Chicago and should receive attention at 
the hands of your honorable body: 

SENATE BILLS. 

382. Amendment to Chicago Sanitary District Act 
which authorizes issuance of refunding bonds with- 
out a referendum and also authorizes the issuance 
of $139,000,000'.00 worth of bonds for paying the cost 
of controlling works without a referendum. The bill 
contains an emergency clause. 

386. This bill undertakes to confer upon cities, 
villages and incorporated towns the right to own, 
construct,. purchase and operate public utilities with- 
out securing a certificate of public convenience and 
necessity from the Illinois Commerce Commission. 
It does not appear to alter the present status so far 
as granting authority to private corporations to ope- 
rate these utilities are concerned, but is evidently 
designed to enlarge powers with respect to public 
ownership. 

391. This bill provides for the licensing of per- 
sons engaged in the business of handling waste mate- 
rial for shipment or resale. It will have some bear- 
ing on the city's powers of licensing junk dealers 
and second hand dealers. 

398. This bill provides for the licensing and 

regulation of the manufacture, distribution and sale 

■ of frozen desserts, ice cream, sherbets, etc. It will 

affect the city's powers with respect to the licensing 

of such manufacturers. 

400. Amendment to Section 177 of the Revenue 
Act so as to fix penalty dates for first and second in- 
stallment of taxes in Cook County for the years 1931 
to 1939, inclusive. It alters the dates which have 
already been fixed by extending the time. 

403. This bill provides for the creation of anti- 
liquor territory comprising any city, village or in- 
corporated town, and the territory within one mile 
of the corporate limits thereof. 

406. This bill would authorize the city council 
to investigate for the purpose of determining whether 
there are any misstatements, deceptions or frauds in 
connection with solicitation for alms, food, clothing, 
etc., purported to be for charitable or philanthropic 
purposes. 

426. An amendment to the act requiring a refer- 
endum for the issuance of bonds by which an ex- 
ception will be made of bonds to refund and pay 
public benefit judgments, judgments against property 
owned by the city under the local improvement act, 
and bonds to fund and pay judgments entered in any 
court of record against the city. 

440. Amendment to Sections 8, 9, and 10 of the 
Motor Fuel Tax Law so as to provide for the distri- 
bution of the gasoline tax, one-third to the state, 
one-third to the counties, and one-third to the cities 
after January 1, 1934. 

442. Provides for calling of a convention in 
Springfield on July 10, 1933, to act upon the pro- 
posed amendment to the Constitution of the United 
States relating to intoxicating liquors. 

448. Amendment to certain sections of the Chi- 
cago Municipal Court Act providing that all em- 
ployes of the court shall be employed under the 
provisions of the city's Civil Service Law and be 
subject thereto. 

449. Amendments to the City's Civil Service Law 
making applicants for positions subject to examina- 



tion with specified limitations for eligibility as to 
residence, age, health, habits, moral character, ex- 
perience, education, training, etc. 

463. This bill is designed to amend Section 191 
of the General Revenue Act in such a way as to 
give the county judge power to open up the entire 
question of the propriety of assessments for 1928, 
1929 and 1930 taxes. It is a bill which would re- 
vive practically all the litigation that has been of 

^such great danger to the city's finances for the last 
'three years. We looked upon the bill as of such 
importance that we prepared a separate communica- 
tion to the council stating our views on the subject. 

464. Amendments to Sections 43 and 81 and the 
addition of Section 74a to the Local Improvement 
Act. This is a bill prepared by the corporation 
counsel at the request of the city comptroller in or- 
der to enable him to handle the payment of unma- 
tured special assessment bonds and vouchers in the 
manner that it has been handled heretofore. The 
bill was drafted in order to overcome a decision of 
the supreme court which the comptroller believed 

•would hamper the city's handling of such matters. 



HOUSE BILLS. 

601. This bill adds a number of sections to the 
Local Improvement Act providing for authority to 
the board to recast assessments and issue refunding 
bonds after getting permission from the court to 
do so. 

618. This bill provides for the appointment of 
a director of local finance by the tax commission, 
and undertakes to give such local director largo 
powers in regard to the supervision of budgets, ap- 
propriation ordinances and tax levies for all local 
governing authorities. 

622. This is a bill authorizing the incorporation 
of housing corporations to provide housing accom- 
modation of families of low income or for the re- 
construction of slum areas. The bill is apparently 
designed to make it possible for the city to avail it- 
self of the provision for housing construction con- 
tained in the Reconstruction Finance Corporation 
Act. 

623. This bill amends the Civil Administrative 
Code of the State in such a way as to create a state 
housing board. It is a companion bill to Houso 
Bill 622. 

626. This bill is an amendment to the Cities and 
Villages Act designed to apply to the city of Chicago 
authorizing it to elect a mayor from its own mem- 
bership or not in case of a vacancy, and fixing a time 
within which a special election shall be held to fill 
the unexpired term. 

628. This bill provides for the licensing of auto- 
mobile repair shops and automobile mechanics after 
January 1, 1934. It will put this regulation within 
the control of the department of registration and 
education of the state and will thereby take away 
the city's licensing power over such occupations. 

629. This bill provides that life insurance com- 
panies may invest their capital and other funds in 
bonds or securities of the United States or of any 
state or municipality or political subdivision thereof 
Mdiere the same are not in excess of 5 per cent of th.^ 
assessed value and not in default. 

630. This bill provides for certain amendments 
to the State Administrative Code so as to authorize 
the director of trade and commerce to carry info ef- 



34

foci the provisions contained in House Bill 620 of 
which this is a companion bill. 

632. An amendment of the Chicago Sanitary Dis- 
trict Act authorizing the issuance of bonds without 
referendum for the purpose of refunding, and it also 
authorizes the district, without a referendum, to 
issue bonds to the extent of $139,000,000 for paying 
the cost of controlling works in Chicago. 

633. Amendment of Section 35h of the 1898 Reve- 
nue Act (Kelly Bill provision). It provides that Hie 
lioard of appeals shall have larger powers with re- 
gard to real estate assessment after taxes have been 
placed in collection. It is evidently intended to 
strengthen the hands of the board of appeals in the 
action recently taken. We regard it as a dangerous 
hill that should receive special attention at the 
liands of the city council. 

(536. This is an amendment of the Revenue Act 
so as to increase the penalty on forfeited taxes and 
special assessments from 10 per cent to i2V2 per 
cent. It is drsirablo in view of the fact that thi,' 
present law enables delinquents to save money, by 
remaining delinquent. 

638. This bill authorizes cities of 25,000 or more 
(o construct filtration plants in connection with the 
^\ater works system. 

643. This bill provides for certain amendments 
of the Revenue Act under which it will be possible 
for the county collector to apply to a court to be 
appointed receiver of the rents, issues and income- 
of property for the piu'pose of collecting and satis- 
lying the taxes. 

644. An amendment to Section 33b of the Local 
Improvement Act so as to permit the city to levy a 
public benefit tax of one mill on the dollar. 

648. This is a bill appropriating $100,000.00 for 
the Century of Progress Commissioners for advertis- 
ing placards, advertising the world's fair in streer 
cars, elevated trains, railroad trains and busses 
throughout the United States. 

660. Amendment to Sections 8, 9 and 10 of the 
'Motor Fuel Tax Law so as to provide for the dis- 
tribution of the gasoline tax, one-third to the state, 
■one-third to the counties and one-third to cities 
after January 1, 1934. 

The foregoing list comprises all the bills intro- 
•liuced during the period from March 22 to April 6. 
inclusive; concerning which we deem it proper to 
call the attention of your honorable body, as being 
bills that directly affect the interests of the city. 
If we have not already called your attention to 
House Bill 415 which provides for state control over 
funeral directors and embalmers, and to that ex- 
tent takes away powers from the city to license such 
.^occupations, we do so now in order that your honor- 
able body may have notice of same.

Request for Endorsement of State Legislation Providing 
for a Reallotment of the State Gas Tax, Etc. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, submitted by the Commissioner of Public Works: 

Department of Public Works,) 
Chicago, April 4, 1933.1 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — A Commission on Future Road Pro- 
gram was appointed by authority of an act of the 
57th General Assembly. This commission has met, 
and has made its report to the Legislature now in 
session. It has caused bills to be prepared to make 
its recommendation into law. These bills were in- 
troduced on March 21, 1933, as House Bills Numbers 
551 to 559, inclusive. 

Several of these bills, particularly numbers 553. 
554, 556 and 558, are of an importance to the City 
that cannot be exaggerated. They propose to provide 
for a reallotment of the State Gas Tax to give the 
cities of the State, for the first time, a substantial 
share of it. They further provide for a more liberal 
improvement of State and State-aid County Route 
extensions built into and through the cities, so that 
both traffic and parking needs may be met, and 
streets improved with grade separations. 

While these bills fail to grant to the cities the 
power to designate the streets to be improved as 
State and State-aid extensions or the jurisdiction 
over such streets after improvement some measure 
of control is granted by Bill Number 556, which pro- 
poses to provide co-ordinated planning in a Metro- 
politan District by the Department of Public Works 
and Buildings of the State, the County Superin- 
tendent of Highways, and an agency designated by 
the city council of any city. A further proposal 
(Bill Number 553) provides that if any part of tlie 
Gas Tax Allotment to the cities is not needed for 
State highway extensions the same may be expended 
for the improvement of arterial streets other than 
State highways, as may be designated by the city 
council and approved by the State. This latter pro- 
vision is weakened, however, by the limitation that 
such improvement shall be only of a width required 
by the needs of moving traffic. 

This department, while it deems State control over 
city streets as offensive and in opposition to home 
rule, nevertheless recommends to your honoralile 
body the consideration and support of these bills. 
and the passage of a resolution of support along llu» 
following lines: 

Whereas, There is now pending in the Legis- 
lature House Bills nuinb(>red 553, 554, 556 am?

of Cook County and the application of such credit 
resources where and as they may be most needed;

Whereas, The restoration of these local govern- 
ments to operations on a cash basis is essential if

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, April 25, 1933. | 

To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

There is now pending before your Honorable 
Body an inquiry with relation to the Taxi Cab busi- 
ness in the City of Chicago, which has prompted 
considerable discussion in the public press. 

I deem it very desirable that this inquiry be 
completed with the greatest speed possible, con- 
sistent with intelligent consideration and determi- 
nation, so that by the opening of the World's Fair, 
we may have in the City adequate taxi cab service 
at a rate of fare which will be reasonable and fair Lo 
the taxi-using public and not confiscatory to the 
companies. 

I have no desire to impose my views on your 
Honorable Body in the consideration of this matter, 
other than to state it is my opinion that there is 
an urgent need for reduction of the present fares, 
and to impress upon you further the necessity for 
additional revenue to the City of Chicago which is 
badly needed in view of the stringency of our finan- 
cial condition. 

The Executive Branch of this government through 
its various departments, stands ready to co-operate 
with you in bringing this matter to a satisfactory 
conclusion.

The following communication was transmitted with 
the foregoing communication: 

Railway Ticket Protective Bureau,| 
Chicago, April 13, 1933. ( 

Honorable Wm. H. Sexton, Corporation Counsel, Chi- 
cago, Illinois: 

Dear Sir — The railroad lines serving Chicago are 
m.aking great preparations for bringing of many 
tourists in to the City of Chicago this forthcoming 
summer. Exceedingly low round trip rates Vsdll be 
made, tickets being limited to use by original pur- 
chaser and within a specified time. 

The situation to which we invite your serious at- 
tention is the wrongful "Scalping of Tickets" by 
persons who gather around our depots on the 
arrival of these excursion trains, and solicit the pur- 
chase of the return portions of such tickets for sale 
to others for their use. This not only results in 
considerable loss to the railroads but very frequently 
results in passengers being defrauded by the sale of 
■ tickets which have already expired, and the conse- 
quent embarrassment to passengers when such 
tickets are dishonored. These defrauded visitors of 
this City will not be able to locate the party who 
sold them the worthless ticket, and naturally will 
call upon the City police. This means extra work 
for them and creates an unfavorable opinion of the 
City as a whole. 

These ticket scalpers are persons of no standing, 
unknown and whose sole purpose is to make such 
money as they can from these unsophisticated 
travelers, and are organized in Chicago in great 
numbers, as there were forty-three of them on one 
train some two weeks ago. 

We have no police regulation or law in Chicago 
that permits our police departments to make arrests 
of these persons and prosecute. There is no State 
law of any value on this subject. 



Due to condition of the times and the extremely 
low excursion rates we are making to practically 
all large cities throughout the country, this matter 
of itinerant scalpers is becoming a very difficult 
matter to handle. But, I am glad to say that during 
the past two years like ordinances as per copy at- 
tached here, have been enacted in nearly all of the 
larger cities, namely: Cincinnati, Cleveland and 
Columbus, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; Savanah, 
Georgia; St. Louis, Missouri; Kansas City; Louis- 
ville, Kentucky, and last month in the Citv of New 
York. 

I would also bring your attention to the fact that 
the Chicago Hotel Men's Association, the Chamber 
of Commerce and business interests of the City will 
gladly endorse and approve of this ordinance. If 
this ordinance is enacted, I can assure you that the 
continued issuance of low-priced round-trip tickets 
will be made in greater numbers than ever before. 

1. That ticket brokerage is dishonest and 
against public morals. 

2. That ticket brokerage provides a school for 
crime and a fence for stolen goods. 

3. That ticket brokerage causes violation of the 
Interstate Commerce Act and cannot exist without 
such violations, and yet provides no penalty for 
its violation. 

4. That ticket brokerage interferes with the 
granting of law rates for conventions, excursions, 
etc., and makes necessary the use of signature 
form of tickets and validation provisions. 

5. That ticket brokerage deprives railroad of 
legitimate revenue. 

6. That ticket brokerage involves dealing in 
the right of railroad transportation by a class of 
men who are not controlled by the moral and legal 
obligations of those who perform the service of 
transportation, and who are to a large extent 
beyond the reach of general statutes regulating 
carriers. 

I am attaching hereto copy of the proposed ordi- 
nance. This has been submitted to your Assistants 
Otto F. Weiner and William V. Daly. This ordi- 
nance has also been submitted to the legal depart- 
ments of the various lines and the Chicago Police 
Department, Commissioner McDowell and Captain 
O'Connor, who approve of same, and to all of our 
passenger associations throughout the country who 
are interested in the forthcoming exposition. 

Please feel at liberty in making such changes in 
this ordinance as you may desire, also feel at 
liberty -to call on myself or any of the passenger 
interests of Chicago, either to appear before the 
Council of the City or at your office to make any 
further explanations you may desire. 

Representing the passenger interests, I beg to 
assure you we would greatly appreciate your taking 
this matter under advice and render your decision 
on same as early as possible so it may be enacted 
as quickly as possible, as really the emergency exists 
in our City of Chicago at this time. 
Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Henry A. Koach, 

Assistant Chairman, Passenger Association.

The Committee on Local Transportation submitted 
the following report: 

Chicago, April 26, 1933. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Local Transportation, having 
had under consideration the matter of the widening 
of the passageway in the lower level of the station 
of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, and the 
intersection of Wabash avenue and Madison street 
which matter was presented to the Committee by 
the Commissioner of Public Works, having had the 
same under advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend that the company's application for the 
permit to widen such passageway in accordance with 
the plan hereto attached be granted by the Com- 
missioner of Public Works, in accordance with his 
letter of April 4th to the Committee on Local Trans- 



portation, also attached (said recommendation hav-

No request being made by any two Aldermen present

thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication submitted with 
the foregoing report: 

Department of Public Works,) 
Chicago, April 4, 1933. 

Honorable James B. Bowler, Chairman, Committee 
on Local Transportation: 

My dear Alderman Bowler — I transmit herewith 
for consideration by your committee a copy of an 
application, dated March 31, 1933, from the Re- 
ceivers for the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, to 
widen the passageway in the subway (lower level) 
of the station of the said company at the inter- 
section of Madison street and Wabash avenue, by 
extending the floor of the subway twenty-one (21) 
feet to the north; also a blue print showing the 
proposed construction. 

The primary purpose of the proposed extension of 
floor space is the concentration of fare collecting 
facilities at one point on the lower level. At present 
such facilities are located in the station buildings 
on the east and west sides of the upper level of the 
station. Such concentration will enable the com- 
pany to operate with a minimum number of agents 
required to serve the patrons of the various ele- 
vated lines. 

The City Council, on January 26, 1914 (Council 
Proceedings, page 3716), passed an ordinance (Sec- 
tion 3) which granted the company the right to 
make the improvements contemplated in the appli- 
cation. The plan, as I understand it, purposes a 
concentration of fair collection devices and ticket 
dispensing facilities, in general conformity with 
modern transportation practice. But, the layout in 
the plans submitted appears to be somewhat experi- 
mental and probably subject to alteration for the 
convenience of patrons. 

I believe that a permit, if you approve of it, 
should stipulate that it does not establish a 
precedent. To that the application of the company 
assents. 

Yours very truly, 



(Signed) 



0. E. Hewitt, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

resentatives of the people of Chicago, share with 
me in the belief that the interests of our City are 
closely knitted with the civic aims and purposes of

casion of their visit to our World's Fair we should 
■ take advantage of every opportunity afforded to 
"sell" Chicago to the distinguisheci visitors who will 



travel to Chicago from all corners of the world. We 
must extend to them a cordial and hearty welcome. 
We must acquaint them with our wonderful boule- 
vards, our splendid parks, our gigantic industries, 
our magnificent buildings, our splendid churches and 
schools, etc. 

To this end. I respectfully submit that your Hon- 
orable Body adopt a resolution authorizing and 
directing your Committee on World's Fair, Conven- 
tions and Expositions to select from its number a 
group or committee — to work in conjunction with 
officials of A Century of Progress Exposition — and 
the Mayor whose duty it shall be to receive, in the 
name of the City of Chicago, these distinguished 
visitors and to acquaint them with the outstanding 
features of our City, the friendliness of our people 
and the true spirit of Chicago. This committee 
should strive to make their visit most enjoyable so 
that they will receive a good, wholesome impres- 
sion of our City and that, on leaving, they will be 
filled with a desire to visit us again. 

Yours truly,

on the acquisition of property would not draw 
interest until the petitioner shall take possession

effect of a recent decision of the courts holding 
the City liable for interest on condemnation judg-

vest in tax anticipation warrants of cities having

agricultural purposes, and is located on the

the 1933 taxes, 50 per cent of 1934, and 30 per 
cent of subsequent years.

$50.00 upon auctioneers. It will probably have a 
bearing on the City's power to license auctioneers.

bill requires ordinances for grants of franchises 
to public utilities to be submitted to a vote at the 
general election. 

848. This bill provides for some changes in the 
authority to regulate mortuaries and embalming 
parlors. It may not affect the City's control, but

nation against persons on account of race or color.

ing the date of application and prohibits applicant

Section 81. Subject to the provisions of this 
Article, each city shall have power with respect 
to public utilities furnishing services, products, or 
commodities within the limits of such city, except 
railroads constituting or used as a part of a trunk 
line railroad system: 

(a) To regulate the quality, adequacy, and 
safety of any sexwice, product or commodity ren- 
dered or furnished within such city by any such 
public utility; and to require such public utility 
to make such additions and extensions to its plant, 
equipment and property within said city as siiall 
be reasonable and necessary in the interest of the 
public. 

(b) To determine and prescribe just and reas- 
onable rates or other charges for any service, 
product or commodity rendered or furnished 
within such city by any such public utility, and to 
prevent unjust and unreasonable discriminations

such city by any such public utility.

informed as to their general condition, the method

regulations relative to the exercise of its :!Owers, 
and to regulate the manner of conducting all in- 
vestigations and hearings, and to alter ami amend

jurisdiction have all the powders and perform all 
the duties imposed by this Act upon the Illinois 
Commerce Commission, except with respect to Sec- 
tions 43, 45. 52 and 80 of this Act, the jurisdiction 
conferred by which sections shall remain with the 
Illinois Commerce Commission. No enumeration 
of powers contained in this section shall be 'con-

damages, criminal penalties or for remedies of 
any character; such provisions shall (except as 
otherwise specified herein) apply as nearly as 
may be to cities in the exercise of powers and the 
performance of duties under this Article; and this 
Article is intended to apply all such provisions to 
such cities as fully as if the word "city" were 



substituted for "Illinois Commerce Commission" 
or "Commission" in each such case. 

Any city exercising powers under this Act shall 
have authority to exercise such powers by muni- 
cipal ordinance, or otherwise, as such city shall 
determine. Such city may, by ordinance, create a 
municipal public utilities commission in and for

public utility or utilities, exercise such of the 
powers conferred upon said cities by adoption of 
this Article as may be delegated to said commis- 
sion by any ordinance or ordinances of said cities 
or any of them.

this Article shall be brought in the name of the 
■ city under whose jurisdiction the cause of action 
arose, and the amount recovered shall be paid 
into the city treasury to the credit of the general 
fund.

shall not apply to nor control transactions by or 
with any transportation district organized under 
the laws of this State. 

Nothing in this Act shall be construed to limit 
or restrict powers now or hereafter granted to 
cities to pass ordinances for the protection of the 
public health, safety, comfort, and general welfare 
or governing the regulation, control or occupation 
of streets, highways and public property within 
the city. Nothing in this Act shall be construed 
to limit or restrict the powers granted to cities 
by this Article, nor to extend the jurisdiction of 
the Illinois Commerce Commission over the mat- 
ters covered by this Article except as herein pro- 
vided. 

Nothing in this Article shall be construed to 
conflict with powers conferred by this Act upon 
the Illinois Commerce Commission, so far as the 
exercise of such powers by the Commission is 
necessary or appropriate to its authority with 
respect to public utilities under the jurisdiction 
of the Commission. 

Section 2. That there shall be added to said Act 
following Section 81 of said Act. a new section, to 
be known as Section 8ia, which shall read as fol- 
lows :

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



May 10, 1933. 



The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, President Hoover submitted to the 
United States Senate, for its approval or rejection, 
a treaty, providing for making the St. Lawrence 
River a deep waterway, the costs of which are to 
be borne by the United States and Canada, the major 
portion falling to the United States; and 

Whereas, The provisions of this treaty, would, if 
approved by the United States Senate, give virtual 
control of our Great Lakes into the keeping of a 
foreign nation, including control over Lake Michi- 
gan which lies entirely wilhin the boundaries of the 
United States; and 

Whereas, This treaty has a provision which limits 
the American outflow from our own Lake Michigan 
to 1500 cubic feet per second, an amount notori- 
ously inadequate to serve the Chicago-New Orleans 
Waterway, and precludes the possibility of a direct 
waterway from the Lakes to the Atlantic seaboard 
across American soil; and 

W^HEREAS, It is self-evident that the completion 
and use of the proposed- St. Law-rencc Waterway 
would redound to enormous business gains to 
Canada at the expense of our agriculturists, manu- 
facturers, mechanics, businessmen and laborers be- 
cause of Canada's nearness to Europe as compared 
with our Mississippi Valley; and 

Whereas, This treaty provides that the control- 
ling works regulating the flow from the Great Lakes 
be constructed on Canadian soil, thus allowing 
Canada to conserve and use these great bodies of 
water for its own use in perpetuity, not alone for 
commerce but for Naval purposes if need arises; 
and 

Whereas, A careful analysis of this proposed 
treaty shows that it is wdiofly inimical to the United 
Slates as a whole and to the great Mississippi Val- 
ley in particular; therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, that we oppose and denounce the "Deep Water- 
way Treaty between Canada and the United States" 
now before the United States Senate as being a gross 
impairment of our sovereignty rights and destruc- 
tive of the best interests and welfare of the people 
of the United States; and be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent 
to the Honorable Wm. E. Borah. Chairman, Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee, and to Hon. James 
Hamilton Lewis and Hon. Wm. H, Dieterich, Sena- 
tors from Illinois in the United States Senate.

Request, for the Enactment of a New State Sales Tax Act. 

Alderman Arvey presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, The Illinois Supreme Court today held 
invalid and unconstitutional the state sales tax 
enacted at the present session of the Illinois Gen- 
eral Assembly; and 

Whereas. Although all forms of taxation are un- 
popular, nevertheless the cost of maintaining gov- 
ernmental functions must be contributed by those 
benefited; and 



Whereas, The sales tax not only is the most equit- 
able and least painful of all forms of taxation, but 
also the sales tax is the modern method of raising 
revenue, and it is being adopted in rapid order by 
olher states of the Union; and 

Whereas, Chicago and the State of Illinois have 
borrowed more than $60,000,000 from the Federal 
Reconslruction Finance Corporation to sustain those 
out of employment and without other means of sup- 
port; and 

Whereas. The proceeds of the sales tax were in- 
londed to be used to repay this loan so that levies 
would not have 'to be made upon real estate, personal 
property and other taxables; and 

Whereas, Unless the errors in the sales tax bill 
which caused its invalidation are corrected imme- 
diately and a substitute sales tax bill is enacted' 
without delay, there is danger that unemployment 
relief may have to be halted and the cost of main- 
taining relief spread on the shoulders of the already 
overburdened taxpayers;- now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That we the City Council of the City 
of Chicago, do hereby urge His Excellency Governor 
Henry Horner and the General Assembly of the State 
of Illinois to enact at once a new sales tax bill; and 
be it further 

Resolved, That such new law, in so far as is pos- 
sible, provide for the exemption of real necessities 
in foodstuffs so as to reduce the burden on the poor 
and needy and place the spread instead on luxuries 
and semi-luxuries. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Arvey moved to adopt said resolution. 
The motion prevailed. 



In (he Matter of the Opening of the Straw Hat Season. 

Alderman Arvey presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, Fashionable men everywhere in Amer- 
ca wear straw hats during the warm months of the 
year; and 

Whereas,' The custom of designating a day upon 
which the straw hat should make its appearance 
has been welcomed by the public and the mer- 
chants; and 

Whereas, Alderman John Coughlin of the First 
Ward is recognized as the fashion plate of two 
generations; now therefore be it 

Resolved, That we, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago, do hereby proclaim "Straw Hat Day"' 
to be established again this year; and be it further 

Resolved, Alderman Coughlin, the dean and Beau 
Brummel of the City Council, is hereby authorized

Telephone Company, plaintiff, vs. G. Gale Gilbert, 
et al,, defendants, and the City of Chicago as inter-

Where.as. Resolutions have been adopted by the

George I. Haight on May 5, 1933, in a letter ad-

recommended further that the compensation of the 
special counsel should be contingent not only upon 
success in the Supreme Court but upon ultimate 
success on final disposition of the case; and 

Whereas, Pursuant to said recommendation of 
the Corporation Counsel, on May 15, 1933, George 
I. Haight. Benjamin F. Goldstein and E. D. Adcock 
addressed the following communication : 

"May 15, 1933. 

Hon. B. A. Cronson, Chairman, Committee on Pub- 
lic Utilities, Chicago, Illinois: 

Dear SiR-^On May 5. 1933. the undersigned, 
George I. Haight and Benjamin F. Goldstein sub- 
mitted to you the basis upon which the under- 
signed would agree to prosecute the appeal to 
the Supreme Court of the United States in the 
pending case of Illinois Bell Telephone Company 
V. G. Gale Gilbert, etc. 

On May 13, 1933, Hon. William H. Sexton, Cor- 
poration Counsel of the City of Chicago, addressed 
to you a communication reviewing the offer in 
the communication of May 5, 1933, and suggest- 
ing that it be changed to the extent that com- 
pensation "should be contingent not only upon 
success in the Supreme Court, but upon ultimate 
success on final disposition of the case." 

The suggestion of the Corporation Counsel is 
satisfactory, as stated to him and to the Committee 
this morning. 

Since our previous communication and our meet- 
ing this morning, we have conferred with Mr. Ad- 
cock, and he joins with us in the following offer: 

In view of the financial condition of the City, 
we think we ought and do make the offer to 
prosecute the appeal and to carry on all further 
proceedings to its final conclusion in the pending 
case of Illinois Bell Telephone Company v. Gale 
Gilbert, etc., upon the basis that we will not ren- 
der any bill to the City for services on the appeal 
or in possible subsequent proceedings in the Dis- 
trict Court, until after the case-is finally disposed 
of, and in the event that the decision is adverse 
to the defendants on final disposition of the case, 
no charge to the City will be made. 

The intent of this offer is to confirm the counter- 
proposal contained in the communication of May 13, 
1933, addressed to Hon. B. A. Cronson, Chairman 
Public Utilities Committee, signed by Joseph Gross- 
man, Second Assistant Corporation Counsel and ap- 
proved by William H. Sexton, Corporation Counsel. 

Pursuant to suggestion made at the hearing this 
morning, we call your attention to the following 
paragi'aph of the Interlocutory Decree entered De-
